Marketing increases the brand footprint of a chimney cleaning equipment and supplies retail business using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.

Directories

Directories are a common tool for finding a chimney cleaning equipment and supplies retail business. When all of your competitors are listed in a directory, you have no choice in the matter. To keep pace, competitive businesses must include the same directories in their plans for marketing chimney cleaning equipment and supplies retail businesses in a region or territory.

Some directories may also let you list more than your name and contact information, so be sure to ask whether your listing can include a logo and other information about your business.
